Smile Hi from France !

Hello !
My name is Manon and I live in France. Sorry I don't speak English very well, I'm here to practice so feel free to correct me if i'm wrong. I hope my English won't bother you.
I have a half pony/half horse ^^ his name is Rollmops !




I'm a harness maker (I don't know if it's the good word). I count on you to help me with the traduction of the equipment of the horse !
I do things like this :




I know the world "side pull" because it's the word we use in french but I don't know how to say for the rest.

You must show us pictures of your harness.

I lived in Paris for 5 years as a kid. My dad was with the American embassy. We attended the Lycee International in St Germain. Mastering a second or third language as most French kids have to do is no small feat. No need to apologize. I never got anywhere close to being able to write that well in french.

Thanks !
I put pictures of my work in my first message, I don't know if you see them ? In french my job is "sellier harnacheur" or "bourrelier", I find "harness maker" as translation but I dont' know if it's the same ?

French is difficult, I know many french who can't write correctly their own language lol. At school I "learned" English, Spanish, Russian and Latin. After I graduated from high school I suck at all these languages !! I never was a good student but I learned English on my own by looking movies and tv show (series ?) in English with sub titles :) So I understand English but it's difficult for me to write it (that's why I hope to learn here).

As you wrote in your original post, harness maker is the correct translation.

Bonjour Manon! Je parle français aussi. Welcome to the Forum. Il y a beaucoup d'information très utile ici au forum. Sellier is a saddle or harness maker. So, it's correct as the OP said. Encore, bienvenue and hope you enjoy the Forum.
